Liturgical Dance

My "cloistered brothers" have an ongoing dispute about Liturgical Dance. A group of them have formed a "Sacred Movement" Group, and will perform at our celebrations.

However, there are some brothers, who, upon seeing the "Sacred Movement" preparations get up and leave. They just think it's silly.

Well I found out by reading Fr. Z's blog, What does the Prayer Really Say? that there are some traditions of liturgical dance that have been around a long time. Seises is a liturgical dance and song done on Easter and the Feast of Corpus Christi, in front of the Tabernacle of Seville's Cathedral. If you watch the dance on You Tube, you'll hear some clicking--castanets.

Like David dancing before the Ark of the Covenant? No?
